British Birds (Barnes & Noble Digital Library): With a Chapter on Structure and Class by W. H. Hudson
Renowned naturalist William Henry Hudson became an expert on birds and wrote a number of eloquent and popular books about them. In British Birds, he turns his superbly observant eye to the appearance, language, and life of all the birds of the British Isles (and to the few vacationers).
William Henry Hudson (1841–1922) was an author, naturalist, and ornithologist. He was born in Argentina of Anglo-American parents. His is best known for his novel Green Mansions, and for his non-fiction naturalist works. His travel narratives about his rambles around England helped foster the back-to-nature movement of the 1920s and 1930s.
